Trying to market the game with a bunch of garbage teams in apathetic markets is a fool's errand. As long as Bettman is guiding the strategy the NHL will struggle.
Who's more likely to do their part to "grow the game":
1) Someone in a "non-traditional market", who needs to expose as many people as possible to the game, or
2) Someone in a "traditional market", where people are going to show up anyway because the exposure has already been there for years?
